Research and Markets: Advanced Automotive Energy Storage and Distribution Report 2014

DUBLIN--()--Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/wtn2nx/the_advanced) has announced the addition of the "The Advanced Automotive Energy Storage and Distribution Report" report to their offering.

That vehicle electrification, and thus advanced battery development, is critical to reducing CO2 output through vehicle electrification is certain today. OEMs have explored a wide range of non-electrification options for improving fuel efficiency, including powertrain, drivetrain and mass reduction measures. However, without significant electrification the challenging CO2 regulation now being promulgated will drive OEMs out of the larger and luxury vehicle segments.

Improvements in fuel efficiency become more costly to achieve, and the penalties OEMs are subject to will become particularly onerous. Dr Christian Mohrdieck at Daimler recently commented to SupplierBusiness that none of the major European OEMs would be able to avoid electrification, as well as other technologies such as fuel cells and bio-fuels if they are to retain the breadth of product range they have today. Without electrification they would be limited to small cars.

This report looks at the key drivers of advanced battery technologies, including fuel economy, CO2 emissions, incentives for grid-connected vehicles and energy security. The value chain for automotive batteries is examined, looking at battery costs and variations and recharging infrastructure. The report then takes a detailed look at advanced automotive battery technologies, including the state of currently competing architectures such as lead acid batteries, nickel metal hydride (NiMH), lithium batteries, anode and cathode materials, super-capacitors and ultra-capacitors. Finally the report provides an overview of the market development and the lithium-ion value chain, looking at short term overcapacity, the value chain today and in the future, manufacturing issues, and the overall market dynamics.

The report also includes an appendix of 28 supplier profiles from suppliers of automotive batteries. These profiles provide you with relevant data on corporate strategy, investments, product offerings and contact information.
